AD LDSP 702 SUNDAY, JULY 4, 2010 LEADERSHIP IN EDUCATIONAL ORGANIZATIONS STEVE KIRCHER SCHOOL/ORGANIZATION CONTEXT ESSAY I work at Notre Dame de la Baie Academy in Green Bay. Notre Dame de la Baie Academy was established in 1990 when three former Catholic high schools, St. Joseph Academy (an all-girls school founded in 1896), Abbot Pennings High School (an all-boys school founded in 1898 as St. Norbert High School ), and Our Lady of Premontre High School (an all-boys school founded in 1941 as Central Catholic High School that had recently turned co-ed), consolidated. The consolidation was necessary to provide the best college preparation high school education to area students. Students and staff from the previous three high schools joined together to create Notre Dame Academy, some of them still work and teach at Notre Dame. The Staff chose the school's name, colors, crest, and mascot with the mission of building upon the strong Catholic foundations established and built by Notre Dame's predecessor schools. The faculty consists of 47 teachers who educate 730-750 students at Notre Dame Academy. The average years of experience among the faculty is 15 years. The school focuses on College Preparation and even offers many college level classes. I work in the Science Department with six fellow teachers.
